I'll stick with this one, the first time I played that mission I had my speakers really, REALLY loud. I almost fell off my chair, and of course, got rammed by the Sathanas.

You know, the coolest thing I remember was when I first blew up an enemy and saw it explode! Simple yes, but it was my first Freespace game. After that I was hooked with it. I was just so blown away by how much "umpf" it had when the enemies blew up. It didn't look like any normal 2D round sprite spitting a few flames. It was REAL Hollywood style. Aaaaaaah. Damn, gotta start playing it all over again now...

Then of course there's the Bastion flying kamakaze into that jump node and detonoating all those meson bombs to collapse the node.

Into The Lions Den, when you make the comm node go boom.  

Btw guys, this was what I made, inspired by this thread as well as replaying FS2:

Hey that looks cool.

My "wow" moments would have to be the following:

Command's message in sm3-10 (Apocalypse) - "Capella has gone supernova! Repeat, Capella has gone supernova!..." : completely unexpected turn of events there; while flying to the node I was really thinking hard about how the GTVA would respond to this. (didn't know that the game ended there)

Snipes' message (of course) in loop2-2 (Into the Lion's Den) - "Dive! Dive! Dive! Hit your burners, pilot!" : I had my headphones cranked up to full volume and this completely startled me - enough to make me jump out of my chair for a second -, after which my Mara got smacked ten thousand meters away.

sm3-09a (Good Luck) Subspace mission in FS1 : really cool background, I was just looking around for a while before going about my objective.

sm1-08 (The Sixth Wonder), arrival of GTVA Colossus : I used to think the normal destroyers were big, but this completely blew me away by its sheer size. After Command told me to depart, I was flying around the ship for five or so minutes, trying to see exactly how it was structured.

I thought I was the only one who did that! I must have spent a half hour flying around that thing. I even parked my ship in one of the alcoves and pondered using it to 'camp' during a mission. I was impressed by the size of the Colossus--for a little while. The Sathanas spoiled that for me, though.

One of the moments that seriously got to me was when the tips of the Sathanas' legs just came inching out of the mist like something out of a nightmare.

#2: That's the Iceni jumping into the knossos while the Collossus's weapons are offline.
#3:Either the Sathanas killing the corvettte or the Sathanas killing the Psamtik.
#4: Argonautica.
#5: Argonautica.
#7: either Clash of the titans 2 or Dunkeresque.

The one that scared the most crap out of me is (bear with me, I may have gotten my missions confused) when you are taking out the gas miners, "Uh, command, we are detecting another knossos", Sathanis comes out, blasts the crap out of the little sobek. That is scarrrrry to see the beams just coming out of the nebula. The first *bzzt* of the BFREDs I accidentally launched some of my missiles

FS2:

* The first time I saw a BfGreen, man that was sweet  

* When you I jumped into my first nebula, OMG how freaking cool was that.  

* On the demo when the Psamtik fires its yellow beams and kills the Balam, that was sweet too!  

FS1:

* Lucifer jumping in on Playing Judas

* Killing the Lucifer in Subspace  

* Destroying my first fighter
